iPhone 8-Review and Features

 

 

Apple released the 1st iPhone in the in 2007, this re-shaping the panorama of Smartphones permanently. Now a decade on, Apple is apparently planning for a major revamp of the iPhone lineup - and it's really tipped to be called the iPhone 8.

The iPhone 8 will tag the 10th anniversary of Apple smartphones, so it is heading to be huge. In this specific article, i am going to give ideas on iPhone 8 release date and features that'll be expected to include it.

This short training video will highlight little idea of iPhone 8

 

 

Who know when the iPhone 8 be released

From your antecedent of Apple since their inception of iPhone 5. below is the starting dates with their previous models.

iPhone 5: Thursday, Sept 12 (reveal) | Fri, Sept 21 (release) While iPhone 5S: Wednesday, Sept 10 (reveal) | fri, Sept 20 (release)

Also iPhone 6: Wednesday, Sept 9 (reveal) | Fri, Sept 19 (release) and iPhone 6S: Thursday, Sept 9 (reveal) | Sunday, Sept 19 (release)

Same go to iPhone 7: Thursday, Sept 7 (reveal) | Fri, Sept 16 (release) and iPhone 7S: Thursday, Sept 7 (reveal) | Sunday, Sept 17 (release)

Updated: But also for iPhone 8 : Finally Launched on 12th September, 2017 in California USA. As well as a new iPhone 8 Plus Apple also unveiled a top-of-the-range iPhone X

In any case, there are biggest change we expect to see from the iPhone 8.

Apple is reportedly plotting three display sizes for the iPhone 8: 4.7-inches, 5.5-inches and 5.8-inches. It’s believed that only the latter of the three will get the OLED upgrade. However, a report in July by Nikkei Asian Review suggests that all three iPhone models will get the new screen.

Also, by virtue of the fact that the Home button may be disappearing, analysts at KGI Research believe that the bottom of the iPhone 8’s screen may be portioned off for functions. This new display function area at the bottom could potentially provide custom controls depending on the app you’re using, a little bit like the Touch Bar on the new MacBook Pro.

There’s also talk of the iPhone 8 borrowing the iPad Pro’s ambient light-adjusting True Tone display, albeit under a new ‘True Colour’ display moniker.

 

Performance:

Apple is also highly likely to introduce a new system-on-a-chip (SoC) for the iPhone 8, as is always the case with major iPhone releases. The iPhone 7 runs on the new A10 Fusion chip, but the iPhone 8 will utilise a newer SoC – probably the unannounced A11 processor.

 

Camera:

The iPhone 8 is expected the feature the same dual-lens rear camera featured on the iPhone 7 Plus. Given that Apple only unveiled its dual-lens technology in 2016, it is unlikely to make any major changes to it in 2017.

As far as the camera goes, KGI Securities believes that Apple will carry over the dual-lens camera from the iPhone 7 Plus, although it isn’t clear whether this will be available on select models. The only specific change mentioned is that both lenses will feature optical image stabilisation; currently, only the wide-angle lens features OIS.

Some analysts also believe that the iPhone 8 will use a revolutionary front camera that features 3D-sensing capabilities. This could be used to determine depth and location of objects in a 3D space, allowing for interesting augmented reality applications in the future.

One of the features Apple is exploring is the ability to take a picture and then change the depth of the photograph or the depth of specific objects in the picture later; another would isolate an object in the image, such as a person’s head, and allow it to be tilted 180 degrees,” the report explained. “A different feature in development would use augmented reality to place virtual effects and objects on a person, much the way Snapchat works.

The iPhone camera features would probably rely on a technology known as depth sensing and use algorithms created by PrimeSense, an Israeli company acquired in 2013. Apple may choose to not roll out these features, but such additions are an up-and-coming trend in the phone business.

 

Water- Resistant:

Apple's iPhone 7 is water-resistant to a depth of 1 metre for thirty minutes - a ranking known as IP67, which is equivalent to the Apple Watch .

 

It therefore is practical that Apple would take this to the iPhone 8.

IP67 means it'll survive a drop in the kitchen sink or down the loo, and it will not break if you put a glass or two over it, nevertheless, you probably don't want to take it going swimming.

Power:

There's also lots of speculation that Apple will finally add cordless charging with the iPhone 8. To begin with, Apple joined up with the Wireless Electric power Consortium (WPC) back in February. The WPC manages expanding the Qi wireless charging standard, which is the main one used for Samsung's Galaxy S8. Set that with the actual fact that there surely is a a glass body rumoured for the iPhone 8, and instantly wireless charging appears very likely. Sadly, the actual fact that the main body may only look on go for iPhone 8 models may signify wireless charging will not be on all devices.

The other big rumour circulating is the fact Apple may ditch the Lightning dock for USB-C. However, some analyst is convinced that will not actually happen; instead, he feels the USB-A part of the charging wire will be substituted by USB-C, as the other end will stay as a Lightning connection. This implies you wouldn't need nice new dongles to impose your mobile, but you'd still take advantage of the features of USB Type C:

End of the Home Button

Rumours have been swirling for quite a while that Apple is planning to remove the original physical Home button and replace it with a touch-sensitive digital button.

This was formerly rumoured for the iPhone 7, but it's now looking much more likely that it'll be one of the major changes arriving with the iPhone 8.

iPhone 8 Software – Will it run on iOS 11?

At the annual WWDC conference in June, Apple showcased the latest version of its mobile and tablet operating system: iOS 11.

There is no proper release date for iOS 11 yet, but the developer preview is already available, with a public beta scheduled for later this summer.

Importantly, the iPhone 8 is almost guaranteed to run on Apple’s new iOS 11 software, given that iOS 10 is now technically outdated.

 

Other Specifications

The iPhone 8 will, more than likely, feature an A11 chip, built on ARM's highly-efficient 10nm manufacturing process, and run the next version of Apple's mobile operating system, iOS 11.

It will come in 32GB, 128GB and 256GB storage options.
